App note: LV5980MC step-down switching regulator

Single chip high efficiency step-down converter, app note from ON Semiconductors. Link here (PDF)

The LV5980MC is a fixed 370 kHz, high−output−current, Non−synchronous PWM converter that integrates a low−resistance, high−side MOSFET and a Customer Chosen, External Diode for the rectification. The LV5980MC utilizes externally compensated current mode control to provide good transient response, ease of implementation, and excellent loop stability. It regulates input voltages from 4.5 V to 23 V down to an output voltage as low as 1.235 V and is able to supply up to 3.0 A of load current. The LV5980MC includes Power Save Feature to enhance efficiency during Light Load. In low consumption mode, the device show operating current of 63 A from VIN by shutting down unnecessary circuits.

App note: Designing a PSR Quasi-Resonant adaptor driven by the NCP1362

ON Semiconductor’s app note featuring 12V 12W adaptor design using NCP1362 primary side regulation controller with valley lockout that hold its switching frequency at light loads. Link here (PDF)

Quasi−square wave resonant converters also known as Quasi−Resonant (QR) converters are widely used in the adaptor market. They help designing flyback Switched−Mode Power Supply (SMPS) with a reduced Electro−Magnetic Interference (EMI) signature and improved efficiency.
